Grocery Clerk.png

Grocery is a rabbit hole in The Sims 3 where Sims can visit to go shopping for ingredients. The grocery offers a selection of items for cooking ingredients, fish, edible produce, herbs[TS3:UL], and kelp[TS3:IP]. Additionally, Sims can also buy items like birthday cake, wedding cake[TS3:G], firework bundles[TS3:S], and lotto tickets[TS3:ITF] from the grocery.

Sims can get a part-time job in the grocery as a Grocery Store Clerk. Sims can also attend Fishing class for §400, and sell fish or fruits and vegetables in the inventory to the grocery. Sims who have enough money can invest their money to become a partner or buy out the property to earn more money. The cost of partnership is §7,000, while the cost of ownership is §20,000. Sims can collect money from the grocery for §1,000 (partnered) or §2,000 (owner) every week.

Additionally, Sims who are at the top of the Professional Sports career can do advertising deals at the grocery, which will reward them with money. Sims can also hold autograph sessions at the grocery. Vampires can raid the grocery for plasma fruit.

Groceries generate the following red map tag in-game:

Grocery items[]

All harvestable produce bought from the grocery has a nice quality, while fish has normal quality. Sims can buy individual items or ingredients by recipe. Sims can also save the shopping list for later use, but only one shopping list can be saved. Saving another shopping list will override the previous list.

Price and sale[]

The price of harvested produce from the grocery is 150% higher than their base values. Selling fish and harvested produce to the grocery has 10% higher value than selling them directly in the inventory. Selling them to the consignment store is more beneficial, however.

Every day, there's a 5% chance the grocery store will have a sale, ranging from a 35% to 50% discount. Sales can last for one or two days. Additionally, Sims who work at the store will have a 10% discount off any items they purchase.

Frugal Sims may also collect coupons. However there is no guarantee that the coupon collected will be for the grocery store.

If Seasons is installed, players will be notified at the start of every summer that firework bundles are on sale, even if they aren't[confirmation needed].

Trivia[]

  • Snobs are more likely to visit the rabbit hole. Sims will not bring toddlers to lots containing a grocery store.
  • One of the benefit of buying ingredients from grocery is that the ingredients from the grocery are of nice quality, while they're only of normal quality if bought directly from the fridge.
  • The music that plays inside the grocery store is the hotel theme from MySims.
  • The Market Basket in Starlight Shores shares the same name as a chain of grocery stores in the New England area of the United States.
